Cro-Magnon migrations

One of the first known modern forms of our own subspecies (Homo sapiens sapiens) was Cro-Magnon. The Cro-Magnons differed from their modern-day descendants in Europe only in their more robust physiology and slightly larger brain capacity. Cro-Magnons started to arrive in Europe about 40,000 years ago, in the Upper Palaeolithic, at a time when Europe was mainly inhabited by the Neanderthals. The origins of Cro-Magnon have been called ‘a complete mystery’. They represented a high state of civilization, and bore no resemblance to the popular picture of scruffy, shaggy-haired, cave-dwelling savages. They hunted and fished in organized groups, lived in man-made shelters, wore sewn clothes and even jewellery, and buried their dead. There are signs that they practised agriculture as long ago as 16,000 BCE, whereas agriculture is usually said to have originated in the Neolithic revolution around 10,000 BCE.1

Poseidonis is the last remnant of the lost continent of Atlantis, mentioned by Algernon Blackwood in his short story, “Sand” (published in 1912), in his story collection, Four Weird Tales and is also detailed in a series of short stories by Clark Ashton Smith. Smith based Poseidonis on Theosophical scriptures about Atlantis,[1] (such as Secret Doctrine by Helena Blavatsky
